Volunteering in the Greenbelt is not only a great way to get involved in your community, it’s a great way to get to know one of New York City’s largest and most beautiful parks. We are grateful to our dedicated volunteers whose efforts make a huge difference in our park.
As you might expect, many of our volunteer projects take place outdoors along our trails system and in natural areas. Volunteers are also a key component at special events such as the High Rock Challenge Adventure Race in April.
There are some indoor opportunities performing clerical or docent duties available.
If your time is limited, you might consider working on a one-time project such as “It’s Your Park Day.” If time is not an issue, then consider volunteering for a seasonal or a year-round position.
The Greenbelt works with the New York – New Jersey Trail Conference to help maintain the park’s extensive trail system. Our volunteer trail maintenance team members “adopt” part of a trail and are responsible for its upkeep throughout the year. This important work supplements the work of the Greenbelt maintenance and operation division.
The Greenbelt works with students and scout groups that are required to volunteer in order to earn school credit or merit badges.
Please email our volunteer coordinator Jeanne.firstname.lastname@example.org or call Greenbelt headquarters at (718) 667-2165, ext. 311 to request a volunteer application and project schedule.
